Aerial photography can be defined as taking photos of the ground from a direct-down/elevated position. Normally, the camera or drone isn’t supported by any ground based structure.
Usually, the platforms for aerial photography include vehicle mounted poles, stand-alone telescoping, parachutes, kites, pigeons, rockets, blimps and dirigibles, balloons’, helicopters, fixed-wing aircraft, and last but not least, unmanned aerial vehicles (AKA Drones).
Mounted drones can either be triggered automatically or remotely. You ought not to confuse aerial photography with air to air photography, whereby air crafts are utilized as chase planes.

- It does not create ripples in waters as helicopters do.
- It can get closer to the subject.
- And the best upside is, you are in utter control of the situation. It is much easier to toggle the unmanned vehicle to any angle that you desire than it is having to ask the helicopter pilot to flip the copter around.
